Most of us imagine that getting pregnant is fairly easy. But is it? The reality is that one in six couples will struggle to conceive without medical intervention. So the chances are that even if infertility isn't affecting your directly, it's having an impact on someone close to you - be it a friend, a family member, or a work colleague.

For over two years, after making the decision to start trying for a baby, Isla McGuckin was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always real, this remarkable and uplifting book tells Isla's story. Pink for a Girl follows Isla's journey:
ˇ from invasive exploratory tests to an emotionally painful diagnosis
ˇ from conventional fertility treatment to alternative remedies and therapies
ˇ from initial desperation and hopelessness to final acceptance.

Review: Pink For A Girl: What Happens When Getting Pregnant Doesn't

User Review  - Berenice Howard-Smith Book Designer - Goodreads

Parts of this are heartbreakingly familiar and others so wildly removed from the outcome of real life it was hard too take in. Sadly so few of us can afford to walk away from life and endure the drudgery of the same life without a baby despite all our efforts to escape. Read full review
